Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

By Thomas Hoffmann

This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Title: Morphology and its Demarcations
Subtitle: Selected Papers from the 11th Morphology Meeting, Vienna, February 2004
Edited By: Wolfgang U. Dressler
Oskar E. Pfeiffer
Franz Rainer
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 264

The papers in this volume derive from the International Morphology Meeting
(Vienna 2004) and were selected because they address the main topic of the
conference: external and internal demarcations of morphology. The external
demarcation between syntax and morphology is dealt with in the papers by
Rood, Cysouw, Milićević, Blom, Enrique-Arias, and Heine & König.
Demarcations of inflection and derivation are discussed in the
contributions by Ricca, Lloret, Manova, Say, Žaucer, and Stump. In contrast
to theoretical discussions in previous literature, which have concentrated
on the internal boundary between inflection and derivation, this volume
attributes equal importance to the demarcations between derivation and
compounding, addressed in the contributions by Bauer, Booij, Štekauer,
Fradin, Amiot, and Saclise, Bisetto & Guevara.
